THE Compiler of the little Office following ventures to recommend its use on the Friday of every week; increased devotion, and abstinence (where possible), being practised at the time. On the remaining days the Prayers may either be used as they stand; or combined with any other order of devotions, private or domestic. Only it should be observed that the last Prayer but one is only to be used upon a Fast-day. The Seven Penitential Psalms, (6, 32, 38, 51, 102, 130, and 143), and the Litany, will be proper additions when time and opportunity permit.
